Good morning, everybody. First vlog of Emery and I's workouts that we do for ourselves. Had this idea because a lot of people will say, "What do you do?" Or, "What do you eat?" Blah, blah, blah. Unfortunately, my workouts are not near as interesting as the workouts that we create for you guys in class. But we want to show you what it's like because a lot of times we hear, "Oh, you guys make it look so easy." It looks easy because we put a lot work into it.
So for my first vlog, I think it's probably important to discuss briefly myself versus Emery. I'm 45, Emery I think is 31, so roughly 14 years younger than me. He does have a lot of fighting experience, so I'm sure he's got some nagging injuries just as I do. So you will see a difference in our workouts, not just in what we like to do or the goals that we have for ourselves, also because we're working around different injuries, I suppose.
All right, so this is not the injury list that a normal person would have, but I've been in martial arts for about 25 years plus all the other things I do with the spartan races and rock climbing, etc., etc., mountain biking. So I've got to work around these injuries in order to get my workouts. So here goes. So starting with my right hand I've got tendonitis in my right wrist that I've been fighting this year, it kind of flared up. Beyond that I have tendonitis in both elbows. Then of course my most recent injury back in June, I had a mountain biking accident so my right shoulder is, I would give it about 70%. I can do normal things with it now, which is nice. So I can turn the key in my vehicle. I'm still doing stretches and strength bands and you'll see some of the exercises that I do I'll be using a cable machine, which is not something I usually use anymore. I gave that up probably about 15 years ago using just free weights and cables, etc. But with the rehab for my shoulder I'll be using those also.
Then my right knee is nagging. It will get sore and swell if I don't stay on top of it. Then my right ankle, I have sprained it and rolled it so many times I've actually stretched the tendons and ligaments in it. So I'm using a wobble board now to try and strengthen that. I've been doing that for about two months, I think, now. But yeah, so I've got more injuries than most people do, so I have to work around this some days. Some days are better than others of course, so we'll just see how it goes. But each time we do one of these, we'll tell you about our workouts, etc.
I'm going to be headed to the [Y 00:03:47] here in about 30-45 minutes. One question you might have is, since I've got a fitness studio, why do I go to the Y? Because when I come here I tend to work and not workout. I'll sit down, I'll answer emails, I clean, I look at ways to improve the space or put new equipment in, change it out, anyway. Headed to the Y today, it's going to be pretty low impact, broad jump burpees, some running, and cable machine strengthening my back and stretching for my shoulder.
Anyway, so stay tuned, we'll be posting these off and on throughout the week. So have a great day and we'll talk to you soon.
